Aluminium Bahrain (Alba), the world’s largest aluminium smelter ex-China, has announced that it is the first industrial company in the region to be awarded with ISO 18788:2015 certification, another certification to be added to its quality management system.
ISO 18788:2015 is an international standard that demonstrates the organisation’s ability to conduct professional security operations that meet the requirements of clients and other stakeholders, while adhering to applicable laws and human rights requirements.
Obtained through international certification body Bureau Veritas (BV), the certification was received following the surveillance audit of Alba’s Security Operations Management System (SOMS) at the company’s main site, Calciner and Marine Facility as well as SPL Treatment Plant, Alba said.
Alba’s Chief Executive Officer Ali Al Baqali said: “We are honoured to be the first industrial organisation in the region and Bahrain to have received ISO 18788:2015 certification. This certification demonstrates our strong governance as a business to continue leading the way in our industry and is a testament to our commitment to meet international standards while doing our work.” - TradeArabia News Service
